SACE Stage 2 Information Technology Examination Preparation Day
While the workshops are designed for students, teachers are welcome to attend.
This full day workshop provides the opportunity for students to develop and polish skills in answering questions under timed supervision, and to improve their understanding and unpacking of exam questions to help them achieve the best marks possible in the upcoming Information Technology examination. Students work with very experienced teachers to explore question responses, discuss, and refine their answers. They will also be helped to develop the hand written page of notes that can be taken into the examination.

iPad App Development using Python
Would you like to write an entire app or game on your iPad using nothing but Python code? This beginner workshop is based around you using the Pythonista app to rapidly prototype an iPad game right on the iPad. No computer required! The intended audience for the workshop is teachers of Years 9 to 11 Digital Technologies. Participants do not need to have any prior Python or app development knowledge. This workshop will also highlight some of the work I am currently doing with my Digital Technologies students and includes stories from current students who have published their iPad apps worldwide on the App Store. Participants will need to bring an iPad with the Pythonista 3 ($14.99) app installed.
